Two goals from Luis Suarez and one from Lionel Messi put Barca 3-0 ahead at half-time with Iniesta, tipped to move to China at end of the season, on target after a smart shimmy in the 54th minute.

Philippe Coutinho hit the fifth from the penalty spot as Barca cruised to a 30th Copa del Rey triumph.
